It would seem that I have picked up a small chip in my fiberglass on the passenger side above the slam door. What is the best way to repair a very small chip.

Thanks,

Depends on how "small" and how much effort you want to put into it. Boat shops will sell fiberglas resin, hardner and color tint, but that will be a big expense with a lot of material left over. I recently had a chip in a fiberglas shower, so I used some epoxy glue to fill the hole, then after it had set up, I used white appliance touchup paint to cover over the amber color of the epoxy. If the chip is very shallow, then the touchup paint may be sufficient with several coats to get the depth.



All this assumes you are really talking about a chip and not a crack.

If it's just a chip and minor put some a dab of clear coat into it. If it's more than that, Larry has some good advice.
